Pulitzer-winning “historian” Nikole Hannah-Jones, who is as dumb as she is dishonest, has been forced to delete her jaw-dropping “take” on Hiroshima.
On November 6, this avowed liar and Big Lie creator who is the miserable and wretchedly imperfect Project 1619 tweeted this guts:
“Being ashamed of shameful things is not BAD. It’s called being an empathetic and moral human being,” she said. wrote, adding, “Shame helps us do better. When I visited the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum about the impact of the American atomic bomb, as an American, I felt ashamed.
If only she could be ashamed of her own flaws and serial lies.
Wait, however; things are about to get worse.
In response to his tweet, someone wrote, “No surprise, she still misunderstands the story. An invasion of the land of Japan would have cost millions of lives.
And here is Hannah-Jones’ total lie about one response (which has now been deleted):
“You are the only one who misunderstands the story,” she tweeted. “They dropped the bomb when they knew the surrender was coming because they had spent all that money to develop it and to prove it was worth it. “
Then she closed with this own message: “Propaganda is not history, my friend.”
The dishonesty, ignorance and toxic mixture of the two that come from awakened Nazis never cease to amaze and disgust. Moreover, even after deleting the tweet, she does not admit that she made a mistake or did not correct the recording.
“Well, apparently we’re at a point in my career where a response to a tweet with 100 likes deserves all kinds of explanation and condemnation five days after writing it, even after deleting it,” a- she declared. moaned. “But of course, okay.”
Which class do our “best” are.
So here are the facts …
Japan had no intention of surrendering. In fact, Japan was so determined not to surrender; Japan did not even surrender after the first bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. Three days later, we had to drop a second on Nagasaki. My God, even after the second bomb hit Nagasaki, the Emperor still had to intervene with the Supreme Council for the Direction of the War and demand that he surrender.
When it comes to the lives saved, the facts are staggering.
Just four months before the atomic bomb drops of August 6 and 9, 1945, there were more than 26,000 American casualties in the grueling five-week battle for Iwo Jima, including more than 7,000 killed. The Japanese suffered some 22,000 casualties, including more than 21,000 killed.
Three months before Hiroshima, during the Battle of Okinawa, which lasted nearly three months, an estimated 12,500 Americans died along with 77,000 Japanese soldiers and between 40,000 and 150,000 civilians.
Now imagine the manic, bitter, bloody and grueling fights if America had been forced to end the war that Japan started by invading the Japanese homeland – something Japan was aggressively preparing for, including the use civilians. While the Imperial Japanese were prepared to fight almost to the last man on Iwo Jima and Okinawa, it is far from unrealistic to multiply the number of casualties by 100 in a fight for the Japanese homeland.
Estimates of casualties in Hiroshima and Nagasaki range from 100,000 to 250,000.
The alternative was much, much worse …
A battle for Japan that was to last over a year, until 1947, and the military had made hundreds of thousands, nearly half a million, of Purple Hearts in anticipation of the human wreckage.
In planning what was to be called Operation Downfall, the military estimated that it would need the resources to treat and replace more than 40,000 American casualties. per month in a battle that was to last until there were nearly 900,000 casualties, including more than a quarter of a million dead or missing. And this is just a study.
A second government study predicted 1.7 to four million American victims, including 400,000 to 800,000 deaths.
On the Japanese side, five to ten million were to die, mostly civilians.
President Harry Truman’s decision to drop two atomic bombs on Japan not only saved hundreds of thousands of American lives, it also saved millions Japanese lives.
The facts surrounding Hiroshima are indisputable, and only a blatantly dishonest and utterly ignorant liar would attempt to say otherwise.
Yes, Hannah-Jones deleted her tweet, but if she cared the least about the story, she would delete her career.
